Just a few weeks ago, Kanye West was called out by popular EDM artist Deadmau5 for using the piracy website, The Pirate Bay and reportedly downloading the software, Serum. Deadmau5, who called Ye’ a “dick” was promptly dragged by the ‘Wolves’ rapper on Twitter. In a quick and hilarious rant of “serious questions” Kanye West tweeted, “… is this person’s name pronounce dead-mow-five?” Since then, Kanye revealed he purposely posted the photo featuring The Pirate Bay to cause a commotion and Deadmau5 has turned Kanye’s diss into a T-shirt. He tweeted the link to fans of a black cotton T-shirt, with “Dead Mow Cinco” and the mau5 head printed on it available for $24.95. Check it out in the gallery.
Just a few days ago, Kanye West announced he would be opening a pop-up shop in NYC to support his most recent album, ‘The Life of Pablo.’ Fans went crazy all weekend over the ‘Pablo’ merchandise, lining up in front of the shop hours before it opened and spending all their hard earned coins. Tuesday evening, Kanye took to his Twitter to reveal just how well the shop did and to thank all his fans and supporters. “They called me crazy and pointed fingers,” he tweeted, “but there is no other brand that could sell 1 million dollars of clothing in 2 days from 1 location!!!” Congrats, Kanye!

Uh ohh…social media is about to explode. Kendrick was in studio being filmed counting a stack of $2 bills, when days later Drake posted a photo with the 6 sign and the same 2$ bill stack above it. This could mean a lot of things, the most hopeful being new music from the two… hit the jump.
It’s X to the Z Xzibit back at it again and no he is not pimping anyone’s ride and he made that very clear to one fan. One fan on Twitter asked if he could pimp their ride like he was doing a decade ago. Check out his response to a fan after the jump. It’s hilarious.
A bold statement thought of by many, attempted by few. Looks like CyHi The Prynce’s loooooong awaited debut album will see the light of day soon. Kanye’s producing & the two are planning to the make it the “the greatest hip-hop album ever”. Hit the jump.
Kanye West just announced on Twitter that this weekend there will be a “Pablo Pop Up Shop” open in New York City’s Soho neighborhood, a big area for fashion. If you’re a Yeezy fan, you might want to check this out. Hit the jump.
Fetty Wap may have a bunch of women in his circle that we can’t keep track of, but he certainly can, and he’s not going to tolerate any drama between the sister wives! As we reported, Fetty brought his daughter and her mother out to Texas last weekend to celebrate the baby’s first birthday, and apparently he rekindled things with mom…or at least she’d like you to believe that via her social media. In a now-deleted post last night, Lezhae shared a photo of a man with his daughter and his wife, both calling him daddy and fighting for his attention. She captioned it, “This was dead me a few days ago.” Hmm.. Meanwhile, she was throwing shade to Alexis Sky on Snapchat – who Fetty just rekindled his on-again/off-again romance with. He brought both ladies to his show in ATL last night, and Lez was apparently upset that Alexis got to be side-stage and on Fetty’s bus, while she was in VIP and in the hotel. This is such a mess, LOL. Check out what Fetty had to say about it in the gallery. Messy!
